Accessory Designers showcased at White Gallery London
As you may or may not know, WeddingHour is a proud Media Partner to White Gallery London for the first year. A prestigious position, bringing you the very latest new and exciting bridal and accessory designers to hit the UK Bridal market. We’ll be attending this beautiful Show (complete with tiaras) on Monday 16th May, so do get in touch, if you’d like to say Hello and share a bottle of Champagne… it has to be done at these, oh so pretty events, don’t you think?
White Gallery London is established as the go-to destination to discover the latest bridal trends from the world’s finest bridal and accessory designers, and it doesn’t stop at the dress. Showcasing a hand-picked selection of footwear, tiaras, veils and accessories from elite labels, the UK’s premium bridal trade show offers discerning retailers and press from across the globe the opportunity to discover the perfect finishing touches to complement the hottest bridal trends of the season.
Luxury bridal footwear designer Charlotte Mills Bridal will present her All That Glitters collection, as well as launching her new handbag collection. Charlotte’s inspiration for the new collection is the glamorous havana nights of bygone eras, taking inspiration from fashion, architecture and interior design. Geometric shapes and curves are mixed together and combined with sexy silhouettes, perfect for dancing the night away.
Glitter and sparkle is key to Charlotte’s trademark designs, with rose and nude tones making an important addition to the new colour palette. Lots of different metallic hues in mirror and matt are also prevalent, all finished with a few bright accents.
Also representing footwear at White Gallery London 2016 is Freya Rose. Inspired by the beautiful Venetian creations that grace the city, the label has created a collection of bridal shoes that capture details of the architectural features and interior design of Venice’s romantic buildings. Freya Rose’s use of unique and interesting component combinations brings modernity to the classic values of couture design.
The 2017 collection sees a colour palette of opulent metallic silvers, rose golds and champagnes, bejewelled with fine Swarovski crystal embellishments. Contemporary yet classic silhouettes evoke the timeless glamour of Venice, with a sophisticated edge.
Emmy London champions elegant, timeless and delicate wedding shoes and accessories. The latest collection is a celebration of intricate geometric detaining, found in Italian gates and the foliage entwined around them. Lattice straps add a new dimension to the collection whilst the introduction of a super high mule and an elegant wedge-heel gives a fashion forward edge – ideal for modern brides-to-be.
Returning to White Gallery London in 2016 is Harriet Wilde, a brand synonymous with unique signature designs, luxurious embellishments, high quality and comfort. Established by the designer Ruth Shaw, the brand was named after her grandmother. The second collection was snapped up by Harrods and has become the go to bridal brand of royalty and celebrities.
Celebrating 35 years in British bridal design, acclaimed designer Sassi Holford will showcase The Couture Veil, a luxury collection of veils designed to complement the exquisite wedding dress collection. Truly inspirational, The Couture Veil offers a choice of tiers, trims and tulles.
Accessory designer Miranda Templeton will be showcasing around 40 new designs at White Gallery London this May. The Refined Florals collection is a move away from the blousy, bohemian style which has been dominant and a return to a more precious, intricate, considered style of embellishment or tiaras.
Show stoppers include the stunning new demi-vines, which are a mix between a comb and vine, incredibly light weight and easily pinned into the hair; gorgeous new woven beadwork vines, Willerby and Worthing, delicate and breathtaking; the innovative porcelana fria technique which produces delicate porcelain like flowers and Miranda’s beautiful new jewellery range, created to wear with backless dresses.
Sasso has gone all out for White Gallery London 2016, with some gorgeous new colours and accessories. Introducing an inky washed soft lawn, lace and Swarovski pearls and crystal. Beautiful miniature handmade flowers in soft pantone shades adorn our signature 501 shape cap, with matching colours of face veiling.
For the very first time, Sasso have added an interesting twist to contemporary jewellery, introducing bespoke pieces which are very bold but with a delicate design, as well as a new sorbet shade of feather for a ‘Sassolicious 2016’.
Ella De Vos for Madame Seguin brings elegant and exciting cashmere knitwear that is designed in Belgium by Ella De Vos and made in Mongolia with Mongolian cashmere yarn by four small Mongolian knitting companies. Appreciated for its softness, warmth and comfort, a bride will cherish her knitted cashmere scarf or cardigan not only on her wedding day but long and happily after.
Richard Designs’ decadent collection of tiaras, jewellery, hair clips, veils and shrugs, unreservedly celebrates the beauty of crystal. Hedonistic hues of Blue Shade, Smoky Mauve and Blush Rose are juxtaposed against the subtle shades of Light Silk, Silver Shade and White Opal, for a spring time splash of colour among the Silver, Gold and Rose Gold set jewels.
The brand’s refreshing use of colour lifts this collection, taking direction from Pantone’s perfectly bridal duet; Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, the popular ‘Colours of year’ for 2016.
The latest collection is inspired by the dream scenes from the eagerly anticipated adaptation of Alice Through The Looking Glass. Fusing the heirloom elements found in the costumes of the Alice characters with the magical glimmer of Swarovski, the new collection offers large stone clustered headdresses with touches of sensitively tonal tulle and chiffon flowers, classically elegant jewellery with large stone and brooch detailing, and muted hue veils with tonal lace detailing.
Additional labels showcasing accessory designers at White Gallery London include Arianna Tiaras, Stephanie Browne, St Erasmus White Ivy, Ivory & Co, Cherished, Kreisi Couture, Rupert Sanderson Bridal Collection, French Sole and The Season Hats.
